Green Tomato Pie Recipe

Green Tomato Pie Recipe

When frost nips our garden, I quickly gather all the green tomatoes still on the vine and make this old family favorite. It's been handed down from my grandmother, and now my granddaughters are asking for the recipe.

  • Pinch salt
  • 3 cups thinly sliced green tomatoes (about 4 to 5 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
